Get ready to learn more about International Guide Dog Day and celebrate it!

It is possible that guide dogs have existed since 79 AD. This was confirmed by the discovery of paintings showing guide dogs helping the blind in the excavations at Pompeii, Italy.

Guide dogs have been used throughout history in many countries, including ancient China and medieval Europe. In the 1800s and 1900s, historians and other anthropologists have seen more guide dog observations through the use of children’s stories and nursery rhymes.

Although guide dogs had been recognized in the past, legislation that allowed them to be licensed was not created until the mid-1800s. In 1838, the British Parliament exempted licensing fees for “shepherds” dogs and “those used by the blind to guide.” This legislation encourages people who have dogs that aid them in their work or with disabilities.

In the early 1900s, guide dogs for the blind were trained in an organized manner. The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association was founded in the United Kingdom in 1934.

These types of dogs were popular among WWII veterans, who lost their sight due to chemical injuries. Although guide dogs have been introduced to many communities, it is not common knowledge that the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), which was created legal guidelines for people with disabilities who need guide dogs, wasn’t established until 2010.

International Guide Dog Day celebrates the service these dogs provide to people with vision impairments. These dogs can help blind people navigate their surroundings, assist with hobbies, pick up lost items, and provide emotional support during service. Guide dogs are one of the most useful service dogs you can have.

Adopting guide dogs is a great way to mark International Guide Dog Day. Even if you don’t have a guide dog, it’s possible to adopt a dog who didn’t finish their training or give them a home.

Sometimes, dogs enter the training program but are unable to complete the program and become full-fledged guides. These dogs are often gentle and have only minor difficulties. However, they make excellent family pets!

This holiday is a great way to celebrate and enjoy it with your family and coworkers. Make sure to spread the word so others will be aware of how important this day really is and that they can support it.
